JOSEPH KKAl 8KOPF, Founder 



AN EMERGENCY 

While the ecouomic conditions we are now passing 
through are very grave, we ninst not lose faith in our 
Government, nor onr form of society, including our many 
worthy philanthropies — the most precious heritage a 
people ever had. 

It is of infinite importance that they be preserved by 
demonstrations of support, at a time when encouragement 
is most urgenth^ needed. 

We must cultivate the spirit of hope, not give way to 
despair; strive to further constructive activities; fulfill 
our duty to help America's development, and contribute 
to her charitable, educational and character-building in- 
stitutions, just as much as they are worth to us. 

The Trustees of The National Farm School earnestly 
solicit your generous aid in the continued success of this 
philanthropic educational institution for deserving boys. 

HERBERT D. ALLMAN, 

President.

THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 



Taking- Stock 



Message of the President 

HERBERT D. ALLMAN 

to the 
Thirty-fourth Annual Meeting 

of 

The National Farm School 

October 4, 1931 



This annual meeting marks the beginning of our thirty-fifth 
successful year. Like a well-managed business concern, let us 
•take stock, not so much of assets and liabilities, but of the achieve- 
ments of an educational endeavor, long past its experimental 
stage. 

"We are pleased with the School's progress during the past 
year. Its Faculty and Staff, under the supervision of Dean Good- 
ling, deserve your commendation. Never before has the per- 
sonnel of the student body rated so high intellectually, physically 
and morally. The careful selection of students can best be illus- 
trated by the calibre of the present Freshman Class. 

Unemployment conditions cause the city youth to look coun- 
trywards. When leaving high school, he is confronted with the 
prohlem of seeking a job, or learning a trade or profession. He 
is aware of the thousands who want work, yet cannot find it. He 
weighs the advantages of country living, and its possibilities as a 
profitable i^ocation, for those scientifically trained. He compares 
congested city life — its noises, smoke and other nuisances with the 
open country. Such sensible thinking causes an abnormal num- 
ber of applications for our scholarships. Only a small percentage 
can be accepted — many must be turned away disappointed. 

Trend in Modern Education 

Benjamin Franklin wrote: "The good education of youth has 
been esteemed by wise men in all ages as the surest foundation of 
happiness of both private families and commonwealths. Almost 



6 THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 

all governments have, therefore, made it a principal object of 
their attention to •establish and endow with proper revenues such 
seminaries of learning as might supply the succeeding age with 
men qualified to serve the public, with honor to themselves and 
to their country. As to their studies, they should be taught things 
likely to be most useful, as well as things ornamental." 

This sound advice is in line with the modern theory of the 
purpose of education. The development of individual capacity, 
made possible through the excellent public school sj^stem of this 
country, is a valuable factor in preparation for a vocational 
career. TheTefore, preference for our scholarships is given to 
graduates of high school — they are better qualified to "follow 
through." Those we cannot admit are urged to continue their 
studies to the end of their four-year course, thus leaving the 
world's work to those who need it most during present unem- 
ployment conditions. 

Unlike other schools and colleges, whose terms average eight 
or nine months, our school term covers the entire year — ^of which 
six months are devoted to the science of agriculture in classroom 
and laboratory, and six months to practice in fields and dairies. 
Correlative with this training is another phase of its curriculum, 
that of impacting the higher ethics of refinement, culture and 
good breeding to all students, so they may learn to use their 
faculties to the best advantage for themselves and others and to 
live completely. 

Ultimate Results Essential 

Oareful consideration should be given to the significant pur- 
pose of an educational endeavor, in relation to ultimate results. 
Success should not be measured alone by the number of our gradu- 
ates following agriculture. 

In order to throw more light upon the scope of our philan- 
thropy and answer the occasional challenge '*Do Farm School 
graduates ^remain in agriculture?" I shall endeavor to analyze 
the question, and demonstrate the value of our institution, by 
submitting clear, palpable facts based upon many years' personal 
observation, and substantiated by nationally known educators, 
agriculturists and economists. 

Assuredly, our graduates are not all farmers, but the per- 
centage in agriculture or allied industries is larger comparatively 
than that of most other vocational schools and colleges. 

Purpose of tlie School 

The basic aims of The National Farm School are to foster a 
love of country life ; to promote education in agriculture by 



THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 7 

teaching- city-bred boys the practice and science of that industry; 
to create an interest in the intelligent choice of farming occupa- 
tion's; to encourage thrift; develop rural leadership; and 
strengthen students' confidence in themselves and their work. It 
offers sound vocational guidance and develops community spirit. 

Learning by Doing 

"Labor Avith learning" is an esisential part of true educa- 
tion. Our students acquire knowledge through contact with 
reality. Recently, Yale University announced that its self-sup- 
porting students had won far more than their proportionate share 
of scholastic honors, an indication that high thinking, plain living 
and hard work lead to success. 

Dr. Gruenther, of Columbia University, in a survey just pub- 
lished, shows that student gToups manipulating raw materials, 
converting them into usable products, are far superior to those 
who merely study in the customary school manner. This evi- 
dences that participation experience provides a natural back- 
ground for learning and brings about an integrated way of react- 
ing to a situation. 

Close observation has convinced me that because of our 
method of education, students receive an invaluable training in 
self-reliauce and absorb fundamentals faT beyond the particular 
objective of the School. 

Farm Training a Mental Stimulus 

Under our system of industrial civilization, the road to suc- 
cess is surer for men who think clearly and logically. Many eco- 
nomic ills are due to the fact that the majority of men do not 
think or plan ahead, but continue in old ruts and repeat their mis- 
takes. Spending three years at our School in agricultural work, 
a boy of average ability un'consciously absorbs invaluable mental 
training. Days, weeks and months ahead he must plan an intelli- 
gent program of sowing, planting and reaping. He must study 
each piece of ground, its soil exposure, necessary crop rotation 
and mineral replenishments. He must prepare to fight various 
insects and weather conditions that interfere with growing plants 
and animal life, and to set up a defense against ravages and 
accurrences of all kinds. 

There are no short cuts in farming. Neglect on the part of 
the operator at critical times spells failure. Errors cannot be 
covered up. Hence, the student realizes he must do the right 
thing at the right time. He has more than a mere job, for his 



^ THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 

interests, always changing, are stimulated. He becomes an experi- 
menter, learning to analyze, to synthetize and, above all, to ob- 
serve. Since he is so close to nature, his philosophy becomes sim- 
ple, sound and practical. He learns not to distort values, but to 
meet his daily problems frankly and intelligently. He enjoys the 
spirit of competition, knowing- that profitable income from the 
farm depends upon effi'cieut productivity and better marketing. 
In short the farmer looks upon things as they are — he separates 
the chaif from the wheat. 

Working with nature — breeding livestock, watching things 
grow with a (scientific "know," solving farm problems requiring 
g-'ood judgment and prompt action, all tend to develop initiative, 
responsibility', sound thinking and a true sense of value. 

Work and simple pastimes on the farm bring a truer reward 
than the overstimulating and often unhealthful occupations and 
recreations of city dwellers. The breadth and simple beauty of 
the countryside, the fragrance and feel of the cool soil underfoot, 
the seasons of planting and harvesting, of sun and rain, influ-' 
ence the sheer joy of independent living. Compare the rugged 
frame, the weathered face and clear eye of the country youth \rith 
that of his often physically weaker urban brother. Early rising, 
outdoor life and hard work with simple diet cannot help but build 
up physical strength and health. 

Classes in Machinery Broaden Capacity 

Our farm machinery classes train students even beyond their 
agricultural education. Here they study the art and mystery of 
automotive and traction mechanics and learn to handle all kinds 
of tools and equipment. Practice at the blazing forge and in 
the woodworking shops develops muscle, skill, accuracy and 
resourcefulness. 

Under the guidance of our School Physician, we teaeh the 
importance of physiology and applied hygiene. Athletic sports, 
musical organizations, literary clubs and other recreational ac- 
tivities are sponsored by the School authorities, under competent 
supervision. 

The essentials of character and personality are stressed. 
Students are taught to obey, and how to tactfully handle subordi- 
nates. The School spirit is democratic. There is no class dis- 
tinction. An atmosphere of camaraderie and fair-play permeates 
our campus life. Social or religious preferment has no place here. 
New arrivals soon learn they are judged upon their true Avorth. 



THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 9 

What of Our Graduates? 

At a recent Alumni reunion, I met many successful Farm 
School graduates. Among them was a Professor of AgTiculture 
at the University of Missouri; the head of a large engineering 
concern: the president of one of the largest seed houses in 
America ; another an editor on a prominent New York daily. 

An out'standing realtor in Chicago, who entered from an 
Eastern college, said to me: "When looking back upon my high 
school, college and Farm School days, it is to the latter I attribute 
most of my present success. The training Avas intensive and 
different. " 

The careers of other outstanding graduates demonstrate the 
value of The National Farm School beyond its primarily agri- 
cultural education. 

An energetic student, leader in class and sports, was gradu- 
ated with high honors and elected President of the National 
Alumni Association. Diligent and intelligent service as a farm 
employee enabled him to save sufficient to purchase his own 
farm. Though successful, he could not withstand an innate 
mechanical urge. Disposing of his land, he studied engineering 
while working for a master machinist. Today he is vice-president 
of one of the largest aircraft factories in the countr3\ 

Another graduate, editor of the School magazine, secured a 
job on a metropolitan newspaper. Within a short time he was 
earning a salary of $6,500 a year. He tells me his present voca- 
tion is but a means to an end, for after accumulating enough 
capital he intends to purchaise his own farm. 

Opinions of Prominent Economists 

Dr. Jacob J. Taubenhaus, '04, Chief Plant Pathologist at the 
Texas Agricultural Experiment Station, said to me : 

"It is recognized today that courseis in agronomy, horti- 
culture, poultry, etc., are just as valuable to train the mind in 
systematic thinking as philosophy or oither sciences. 

"A large proportion of oollege students specialize in lines 
they never follow, yet their time has not been wasted — they are 
better equipped. At this School, thirty years ago," he said, "I 
acquired a backgTOund, a wide horizon, a training in good citizen- 
ship and morals, most helpful throughout my career." 

Mr. Aaron Sapiro, nationally known agricultural economist, 
after a recent .study of our gTaduate records, said : 

"I note that a very fine proportion of your graduates are 
actively engaged in agriculture — that their excellent training is 



10 THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 

reflected in the breadth of their interests — that many are doing 
technical ^York in agricultural schools and official positions most 
helpful to farmers all over the land. This proves j^ou have not 
only given them a knowledge fundamentally sound, but have 
rooted in them a love for that noble industry. 

"Your graduate records justify very great pride, and war- 
rant the support of the American public. The National Farm 
School is not merely a great gesture by the Jews toward intelli- 
gent agricultural development, it is a great American organiza- 
tion, performing a substantial service for young Americans and 
guiding them into an intelligent, progressive fitness for agri- 
culture." 

In a recent survey. Dr. Clyde L. King, agriculturist, econ- 
omist and professor of the Wharton School of Finance, said : 

''Educational training is far too subtle in itss true values, to 
be measured even in part by the life vocations chosen by its 
graduates. 

"For a training in agriculture, physical stamina, social values 
and mental development, one would look far and wide before a 
better background could be found than that offered by your 
School. Pupils learn most readUy in an environment charac- 
terized by happiness, creative activity, educational understanding 
and mutual service. Such training will be invaluable to any life 
work." 

Concluding, he answers his o^vn query. "Have your gradu- 
ates succeeded? Notably so, whether in agriculture or in other 
pursuits. They show a versatility in their chosen calling, reflect- 
ing creditably upon the worthiness of the training they received. 
Your School has a place as strong as it is unique in the educa- 
tional service of this country," 

Accomplishing Fundamental Object — and More 

Such opinions by outstanding agricultural educators deserve 
due consideration. A long record, substantiated by our many 
successful graduates in farming, proves we are accomplishing our 
fundamental object. Assuming this then to be true, my purpose 
is to stress the additional and unseen values of the School, upon 
which we should be judged and not alone by the number of 
graduates following agriculture. The point I A^ish to make is best 
expressed by Dr. King when he speaks of the "subtle results" of 
all educational training. 

The broader service of this School to the community is that 
of fitting students to take their places in the world, as forces that 



THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 11 

make the lives of others more interesting and bappier than they 
might otherwise be. Its benefits have a much wider spread than 
jusTt a training in agriculture. It is a center for the diffusion of 
general knowledge that enables the thinker or skilled workman 
to solve his problemis in any endeavor. It sends forth physically 
and mentally fit men, who are able to qualify as good citizens 
and who better understand life and human ways. 

Therefore, and with no intention of indulging in complacent 
self-satisfaction, I contend that we merit public support in o-ur 
purpose to further the progress and welfare of worthy lads who 
cannot afford to enter an agricultural college. 

Agriculture Holding- Its Own 

Notwithstanding the abnormally low price of wheat and 
cotton, the former Chairman of the Federal Board, one of the 
best informed men agriculturally, claims that farmers are still 
solvent. He adds that only half our cultivated farm land is under 
indebtedness ; that agricultuTal conditions are more favorable than 
those of industry, including railroads and other large corpora- 
tions. 

American farming is not bankrupt. Certainly, farm values 
have decreased, so have tlie values of merchandise, stocks and 
real estate. Farmers are not starving. They are buying just as 
many automobiles as bankers and business men. One-crop men 
and those refusing to apply business m>ethods to farming will 
meet with difficulties. Nevertheless, many farmers are prosperous 
as times ago. They study soils, markets and world crop reports. 
They manage their farms on commercial lines and are in a posi- 
tion to make profits from what they grow. 

When depression hits business, millions are thrown out of 
work, many become dependent upon charity for subsistence. 
Economic and social changes, too, have their effect upon the lives 
of American families. Improved machinery, new inventions, in- 
creased effijciency in busuiess and larger productivity greatly 
affect labor conditions, causing increased unemployment. More 
women and younger men are now working. The 1930 census 
shows a smaller proportion of men employed, whereas the per- 
* eentage of women gainfully at work is greater. The rapid in- 
crease in the use of machinery and rising standards of education 
account for much of this trend. The services of persons of middle 
age and beyond are less in demand. This brings insecurity and 
discouragement. 



12 THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 

Farmer Self-Sustaining 

The fariwr, on the other hand, is self-isustaining. He does 
not share all the burdens of city life. The family that makes a 
home on the farm with diversified crops, fruits and cattle, suf- 
ficient to meet its daily requirements, finds that farming still 
offers a healthy, happy and independent living, even though not 
always practicable to employ a large amount of machinery or 
cultivate extensive acreage. The great progress in transporta- 
tion, improved country schools, commercialization of amusements, 
electiricity and labor-saving devices, all tend to make the farm 
home more attractive and liveable. The bread line is not a fea- 
ture of farm life. Surely then, the farmer of whose economic 
woes we hear so much is far better off than the many city workers 

out of a job. 

Farm School Not Endowed 

I wish to take this occasion to thank the generous friends, 
patrons and trustees of this Institution for their support and 
courage in carrying on "as usual" during the past two years of 
economic depression. I do not hesitate to recognize the value 
and vision of service for others back of this, at a time when most 
institutions have curtailed activities. Nor do I fail to appreciate 
their unselfish devotion to the welfare of the j-outh of America, 
based on the belief that "There is great good in every boy." We, 
therefore, make this earnest plea, for your continued liberal sup- 
port. 

Like others, dependent upon public support, our income has 
been greatly reduced, neeessitating the depletion of a limited 
resierve fund. With returning prosperity and faith, we feel as- 
sured our eontributors will help restore this capital, invested in 
such a worthy cause. The National Farm Sehool, a Jewish con- 
tribution to American agriculture, offers its scholarships to de- 
serving boys, irrespective of creed, from any part of the United 
States. By energy, determination and persistence, encouraged by 
your help, we are optimistic as to the future welfare and success 
of our endeavor.

friends of the School, to witness the graduation of forty-five mem- 
bers of the Senior Class on March 22, 1931,

reason of three years' meritorious effort in general and ispecial- 
ization work, passed the School's requirements for graduation. 

The Class was notably represented by Jack Goodman, of 
Paterson, N. J., who offered the Salutatory; and by Carl Cohen,

ideals which the School endeavored to foster in them. He re- 
minded them that "upon the development of the life in the 
country rests ultimately our ability to continue to feed and clothe 
the Nation." Continuing, he adjured them "to surmount dis- 
couragement and stick to their chosen vocation, if they love 
freedom and would know eventual independence." 

Dr. J. P. Lipman, Dean of the Agricultural College of Rut- 
gers University and Pirector of the New Jersey Agricultural Ex- 
periment Station, who delivered the Graduation Address, gave a 
comprehensive picture of the ultimate outcome of agriculture, 
scientifically pursued. He said that "agriculture is furnishing, 
to an increasing extent, raw materials for manufacturing pur- 
poses. There are many plant products which are destined to play

THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 19 

FOUNDER'S DAY 

Sunday, June 7, 1931 

The National Farm School sets aside annually the first Sun- 
day in June as Foundeir's Day, to honor the memory of the 
Founder, Dr. Joseph Krauskopf. 

The event this year occurred on Sunday, June 7th, and 
marked the Thirty-fourth Annual Spring Festival and Tree Dedi- 
cation Exercises. Some 3,000' friends and patrons of the School 
participated, and enthusdastically inspected the fine buildings 
dotting the spacious campus, and the 1,200 well-tilled acres. Farm 
School never fails to impress the visitor to its grounds with a 
sense of the fine purpose back of it, with the ardor and vision of 
its Founder and those who have succeeded him, with its loyal 
Faculty, and the manliness and sincerity of its earnest body of 
students. 

The exercises were held out-of-doors, in a beautiful grove, 
overhung with fine old shade trees. Mr. Harry B. Hirsh, of 
Philadelphia, Honorary Chairman of the Board, presided. Presi- 
dent Herbert D. Allman, in a constructive and timely message, 
stated that "The National Farm School stands a living monu- 
ment to 'Dr. Krauskopf 's memory." Referring to the struggle 
against economic forces, he declared that the country at large 
"would emerge with unshaken faith and with renewed confidence 
in man's capacity to overcome the temporary obstacles and set- 
backs that now seem to impede our progress." The problem 
over which he expressed concern was that of having to turn away 
disappointed, hundreds of worthy boys who cannot be admitted 
because of the School's limited funds. 

Mr. Benjamin H. Ludlow, of Philadelphia, civic and philan- 
thropdc leader and a brilliant orator, gave the Founder's Day 
address. He spoke of the many contacts he had had with the 
School's Founder, in. various communal causes. He declared that 
the essential teaching of Dr. Krauskopf was that thinking of 
othens is one of the finest things man can do, and that the found- 
ing and upbuilding of The National Farm School, where worthy 
boys are given a most wonderful opportunity to help themselves 



20 THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 

—to make something of themselves — is in line with that teaching 
— with that ideal of thinking of others. 

x\ portrait of Dr. Krauskopf, painted by Mark Raditz, of 
Philadelphia, and presented to the School by President Allman, 
was dedicated in a beautiful and fitting tribute by Miss Harriet 
Sartain, Dean of the Philadelphia School of Design for Women. 

The Tree Consecration Address was delivered by Dr. Nathan 
Krass, of New York, who^ reminiscently spoke of many charm- 
ing incidents in the life of the Founder and in the upbuilding 
of the School. Then in a meditative and feeling address, Dr. 
Krass dedicated the Festive and Memorial Trees, which had been 
planted and inscribed in the names of prominent living and de- 
ceased friends of the School. 

A special tribute was offered by Mr. Alfred M. Klein, of 
Philadelphia, in honor of the eightieth birthday of Mr. Barney 
Selig, a Trustee of the School, and in memory of his wife, Alice 
K. Selig, who had recently passed away. 

Special tributes were also paid to other outstanding bene- 
factors of the School Who had passed away during the year, 
among them being: Mrs. Morris Lasker, Mr. and Mrs. Nathan 
Straus, Dr. Joseph Silverman, Rabbi Emeritus of Temple 
Emanu-El, of New York; Mrs. Rebecca L. Krass, of Chicago; 
Judge Josiah Cohen, of Pittsburgh; and Hon. Ben Selling, of 
Portland, Ore. 

The complete list of trees dedicated at these exercises is 
published on page 18 of this book. The announcement by Mr, 
Jos. H. Hagedorn of the death of Mr. Mortimer L. Schiff, of New 
York, who was an outstanding benefactor of the School, Avas re- 
ceived with profound sorrow by the assembled audience. A 
message of condolence was sent on behalf of the entire gathering 
to his bereaved wife, and to his mother, Mrs. Jacob H. Schiff. 

The School Band, under the directioin. of Lieut. Joseph 
J^rankel, Philadelphia's prominent bandmaster, furnished music 
for the occasion.

22 THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 

HARVEST FESTIVAL AND THIRTY-FOURTH ANNUAL 

MEETING 
Sunday, October 4, 1931 

The Thirty-foui'th Annual Meeting and Harvest Festival held 
on Sunday, October 4, 1931, brought the usually large pilgrim- 
age of friends of the School from surrounding communities to the 
institution's' grounds at Farm School, Bucks County, Pa. 

This Harvest Festival parallels the ancient feast of Succoth, 
celebrated in the Hebrew calendar as characteristic of the thanks- 
giving and rejoicing of an agricultural people over the blessings 
of bounteous harvests. 

The exercises were held in Louchheim Auditorium, which 
was decorated with autumn foliage and products of the fields, 
and included an exhibit of fruits, vegetables, flowers and grain 
raised by the students. 

Adolph Eichholz, Esq., Chairman of the Board of Trustees, 
acted as presiding offieer. The President, Mr. Herbert D. AUman, 
presented his annual message, which subsequently received large 
and favorable press comment throughout the United States, both 
editorially and in column. Mr. Allman made many significant 
points in sketching the status of the farmer and that of his con- 
temporary in the cities. He expressed the opinion that the 
economic success of the farmer depends on his OAvn brain, and 
brawn, not upon government subsidy nor legislation. Focusing 
then on the School itself, he gave an account of the progress 
being made and the work being done in training deser\nng boys 
for agjricultural vocations. He stressed the broader service of the 
School to the community in sending forth physically and men- 
tally fit men who are able to qualify as good citizens and who 
better understand life and human wiays. He referred to the 
great shrinkage in the School's income, due to present economic 
conditions, and made an earnest plea for continued support, in 
order that the School may continue to function successfully. 
(The President's message is reprinted in full on pp. 5 to 12 of 
this book.) 

Mr. Samuel S. Fleisher, of Philadelphia, widely known hu- 
manitarian, patron of art, and founder of the Graphic Sketch 
Club, was the guest speaker. Mr. Fleisher referred to his work 
as head of the Food Conservation Committee, the purpose of 
which is to secure fruits and vegetables, otherwise unmarket- 
able, and preserve them against the winter for the city's poor. 



THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 23 

He felt that a study should be made of the needs of the Nation in 
relation to normal food consumption, and that a means of con- 
trol to assure the farmer a market for his product and eliminate 
Avaste should be established. 

The Dean of the School, Prof. C. L. Goodling, gave his year's 
resume of School activities and workings of the farms and de- 
partments, as well as a kaleidoscopic glimpse of the general 
healthy state of the agricultural industry in this country. 

Concerts by the School Band, preceding and following the 
exercises, were very much enjoyed by the audience. 

The election of Officers and Trustees of the School completed 
the program. The following panel was duly and unanimously 
elected : Mr. AUman re-elected President ; Vice-President, Joseph 
H. Hage^orn; Treasurer, Isaac H. Silverman; Trustees re-elected 
for three years, Mrs. Gabriel Blum, Harry Burstein, Horace T. 
Fleisher, Roy A. Heymann, Charles Kline, Elias Nusbaum, Leon 
Rosenbaum, Philip Sterling. New members elected were Dr. Leon 
Solis-Cohen, James M. Anderson and J. Griffith Boardman. 



REPORT OF THE DEAN 

C. L. Groodling 

To the TMrty-fourth Annual Meeting, October 4, 1931 

It is gratifying to state that the past year has been the most 
satisfactory in the history of my administration. The general 
morale of the student body was most excellent. The enthusiasm 
evidenced hy the students in trying to get the most out of their 
classroom and industrial work was very marked during this period, 
so much so that in a student body of 181 there were only 90 
scholastic conditions. This, compared to two years ago, when we 
had 370 conditions, and four years ago, when we had over 600 
conditions, shows a very great improvement in the attitude of the 
students. It is also interesting to note that 46 men in the institu- 
tion are carrying the 90 conditions, which leaves 135 students in 
perfect standing. 

We can attribute this standing to several reasons, the main 
one being the thoroughness with which the Admissions Com- 
mittee makes its selections. Too much credit cannot be given to 
President Allman who works unceasingly in his investigations of 
the applicants, in order to find the very best material for our 



24 THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 

student bod}^ Another reason for this lower number of condi- 
tions can be attributed to the fact that almost 90 per cent, of the 
present Freshman Class consists of high school graduates. In 
order that we may be fair to students of varjdng eduoational 
preparation, the classes are divided for both classroom and in- 
dustrial work, according to previous training. AVe are thus able 
to give students wiho have completed high school, more thor- 
ough and more advanced classroom work, which should make of 
them better prepared graduates. 

The student organizations in the School are functioning sat- 
isfactorily. Several new organizations have been added during the 
year, among them being a Dramatic Society, a Glee Club and 
Debating Teams. These organizations, together with the chang- 
ing of the fifteen-minute morning assemblies to a one-hour period 
on Wednesday, at which time we have reports by Faculty mem- 
bers and talks by students, have added a great deal to the gen- 
eral interests of the School, outside the regular classroom and 
field-work schedules. 

The student body at the present time is the largest in the 
history of the School for this same date. Owing to the fact that 
we had approximately 500 applications for entrance from boys 
from all parts of the United States, and among them such ex- 
ceptionally good material, the Admissions Committee admitted 
10 more students than our actual capacity. Because of our very 
careful selection, the number of withdrawals or dismissals has 
been practically nil. 

Several Faculty changes were made during the past year, 
among them the appointment of Mr. Francis X. Brenneis, a gradu- 
ate of Connecticut Agricultural College, who had previously been 
Field Assistant with the American Jersey Cattle Club, to take 
the place of W. N. McClung, resigned. Miss Jean Bank, a gradu- 
ate of Bucknell University, was appointed to take the place of 
Mr. Paul McKown, as teacher in English and History. 

We very much regret to report the resignation of Mr. David 
M. Purmell, who was head of the Horticultural Department for 
the past ten years. Mr. Purmell leaves us to operate his large 
farm, recently purchased in New Jersey. However, we feel very 
fortunate in having been able to secure the services of Prof. L. M. 
Montgomery, a graduate of Colorado Agricultural College and for 
the past twenty years professor of horticultural work at Ohio 
State University, Columhus, Ohio, to succeed Mr. Purmell,

luasmuch as our large acreage, dairies, nurseries, orchards, 
greenhouses, etc., constitute a laboratory for student work, I 
feel that a report on the farm activities is always interesting. 
During the year we rented, for a tive-year period, a farm of 90 
acres, which gives us 10 farms, or a total acreage of over 1,100 
acres under cultivation. These farms are operated entirely by 
student help, and never have been in finer condition than during 
the past year. Much credit is due the various Faculty members 
for the interest developed among the students in boosting the 
field laboratory work, not only from the standpoint of more care 
and beautifying of the farms, but also from that of financial 
return. It might be interesting to know that there has been a 
gradual increase for the past five years in returns from our farms, 
even under the much-talked-of farm depression. 

We can also feel very proud of our advancement in live- 
stock. During the last five-year period there has been a gradual 
increase in all our lines of livestock, but especially so in our 
dairy herd. We are proud of the fact that we have at least 
equalled, ot slightly bettered, the present national record for 
production of an Ayreshire herd. This, to my mind, gives the 
best illustration of the thorough training given our students in 
farm practices. These cattle were handled entirely by students, 
who had no knowledge, when they came here, of the handling of 
dairy cattle, and to establish a record such as this is no small 
achievement. 

I cannot close without expressing to our President, Chair- 
man and Board of Trustees my appreciation of their efficient ad- 
ministration of the affairs of the institution during the trying 
times we are passing through. They have never permitted the 
plant to deteriorate, have always insisted on keeping up the high 
standard of work in classroom and field, as well as good, com- 
fortable living for all the students. This speaks well for their 
interest in the School when they know they are depleting their 
small surplus, through the deficit which is accumulating each 
year because of curtailment of income during the present hard 
times. It is hoped that our friends will stand by us and help us 
continue the successful functioning of this worth-while institution.

34 THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 

EDITORIAL COMMENTS ON THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 
BY PROMINENT NEWSPAPERS 

Those reprinted below were selected at random from among 
many articles and editorials appearing in the press throughout 
the United States during the past year: 

No Breadlines Among the Farmers 

There seems to be a growing sentiment tliat we Americans, of whatever 
faith, must regain something of those ABC fundamentals that preceded the era 
of speculation and splurge. It seems to be agreed, also, in most quarters, that 
agriculture and the well-being of the farmer are basic needs of the economic 
readjustment confronting this country in common with the rest of the world. 
With maladjusted rural conditions it is impossible to have a return of sound 
prosperity. 

We feel this pertinent to our columns for the reason that the Jewish trend 
farmward has been considerable in recent years. No need for statistics ; but the 
reports of the Jewish Agricultural Society bear us out. It is inevitable that 
with the overcrowding of the professions, many Jewish boys should turn to 
scientific agriculture as a career. 

The recent Harvest Festival of The National Farm School, at Doyles- 
town, Pennsylvania, marked the beginning of the thirty-fifth year of that insti- 
tution's pioneer activity. With a present enrollment of 190 students, it proves 
the vision of the founder that specialized farming could be made a profitable 
vocation, relieving city congestion and bringing Jewish youths back to the soil, 
as of yore in the ancient commonwealth. The Farm School is non-sectarian, 
and its work in turning out boys trained in stock raising, floriculture, hus- 
bandry, farm mechanics, fruit culture, soil chemistry and the like has been a 
real contribution towards strengthening the sinews of our economic life. The 
record of The Farm School is a proud one ; its influence has been far wider than 
merely the training of its graduates. 

Recovery from the prevailing depression must have, as a concomitant, a 
preliminary tonic for the business of farming. Yielding a surplus beyond 
human consumption, more than one-half our cultivated farm land is, neverthe- 
less, under crushing indebtedness. And still, there is no breadline in farm life. 
Even harassed farmers are better off than unemployed city workers. 

The National Farm School, a Jewish contribution to American agriculture, 
ofifers its scholarships, including tuition, board and room, to deserving boys, 
irrespective of creed, from any part of the United States, to the limit of its 
capacity. Never in its thirty-five years' existence was its work more vital to 
the welfare of the country than now. Herbert D. Allman, president of the insti- 
tution, together with his associates, are doing a notable piece of tangible con- 
structive altruism. — American Hebrew. 



Self -Help for the Farmer 

Self-dependence of the farmer and the application of approved methods to 
his business was the keynote of President Herbert D. Allman's address at the 
annual Harvest Festival of The National Farm School, near Doylestown. Ex-

tended observation seems to have confirmed him in the doctrine that the pros- 
perity of the American farmer is not to be promoted by subsidies or political 
nostrums. He must use his own brains and avoid difficulties by abandoning 
the one-crop practice and employing diversification. 

The fact tliat variety has brought commensurate rewards to the majority 
of farmers in Central Pennsylvania furnishes immediate evidence of the sound- 
ness of President .Mlman's views. He does not deny that the farmer shares in 
the general economic depression, but reminds those who stress the slump in 
farm values that stocks, urban real estate and merchandise have also suffered. 
Another truth not to be forgotten is that the farmer is relieved of some of the 
more oppressive burdens of city life. Having an abundance of food, he is self- 
sustaining. 

President Allman has been a consistent believer in machinery on the farm, 
and one of the principal courses introduced under his initiative at The National 
Farm School gives thorough instruction in the use and care of machinery. He 
now points incidentally to the lightening of the labors of wives and daughters by 
the extending introduction of mechanical devices into rural homes. — Tlie Pliila- 
delpliia Evening BiiUctin. 



A Jewish Aid to Agriculture 

An agricultural college, founded by an eminent Jewish scholar, maintained 
largely by Jewish beneficence, but open to students of all creeds without dis- 
tinction — this is The National Farm School which is observing its thirty-fourth 
anniversary at Doylestown, Pa., near Philadelphia. 

With an enrollment of nearly 200, the school supplies not only free tuition 
but board and lodging for its students twelve months in the year. 

The recital of these fundamental facts in relation to the school marks it as 
an institution almost, if not altogether, unique. Even in its inception The 
National Farm School was unusual. For its original purpose was to turn the 
thought of Jewish youth to agriculture. 

Originally a pastoral and an agricultural people, for centuries the Jews 
were barred from the soil by the laws of the countries in which they lived in 
exile. To reclaim their ancient interest in the land as a basis of social and 
economic well-being. Rev. Joseph Krauskopf, a leader of Jewish thought and 
culture, gave years of idealism and energy to promoting The National Farm 
School. 

The breadth of its foundation principles is shown through its doors open 
to students of every faith. The note at the school's anniversary is that despite 
the crushing financial burden under which so much of the agriculture of the 
Nation rests "there are no breadlines on the farms.", 

A college of scientific agriculture. The National Farm School is a notable 
contribution of Jewish culture and benevolence to the welfare of the American 
people. — San Francisco Chronicle. 



Facing Our Problems With Cheerfulness 

There was much sound sense in the address of President Allman at the 
Founder's Day celebration and tree planting exercises at The National Farm 
School in Doylestown. He rightly declared that fundamental poverty was in- 



36 THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 

consistent with wealth-producing America. He was not exaggerating when he 
declared that more cheerfulness of spirit and more confidence, patience and 
courage on the part of the general public would correct unemployment and 
hasten the return to prosperity and happiness. "In this machine age," he said, 
"perhaps too many of us are looking for engine trouble, whereas what we need 
is a supply of good gas." He added : "It is true that we are facing difficulties, 
but not impossibilities." The day is sure to come when we shall wonder why 
we ever permitted ourselves to become as pessimistic as some have in these 
troubled times. 

The optimist who spoke at Doylestown was not afraid to make a predic- 
tion. Here it is : "We shall emerge from the present state of affairs with un- 
shaken faith in our country's future, with renewed confidence in our own 
capacity to meet and overcome the temporary obstacles that seem to impede 
our progress." 

It is good to hear from men who have no doubt about the final out- 
come. . . . We have seen the pendulum swing from extreme optimism to 
pessimism. Now, happily, executives everywhere are admitting that our prob- 
lems are not insoluble. 

It is a long road that has no turning and we have now reached the stage 
when hope is taking the place of despair. More and more people are looking 
on the bright side. It is only a question of time when the majority will feel 
that the struggle is going to end in victory. This is what we call psychology — 
mass psychology. Be an optimist and you will hasten the return of the in- 
evitable. — Philadelphia Inquirer.

Easy Chairs 

DO NOT MAKE AN 

Easy Life 

Home -MAKING is primarily 
woman's work. It is she who buys 
the chairs and the lamps and the 
bric-a-brac which make the living 
room comfortable and attractive. 

But easy chairs do not make for an easy life. 
If there are many household chores to be done, few 
are the hours that can be spent in an easy chair. 

The modern woman knows that the surest way 
of creating a comfortable and happy home is to 
complete household tasks in the fastest and best way.
